Out of the blue there I met you - Part 2

Image
People may say I am a nice guy and really sweet but deep down we all know , no one is perfect  . Long back I had made a promise to myself that people who chose to walk away from me or my life once , will never make a come back . Never means never . This may be a bit too harsh but then you have to make some rules for your own good and happiness  .

Remember , in life not everyone deserves a second chance. If someone really cared for you or appreciated the person you are , believe me they would have gone all out to be in the journey or least , to walk along with you.

That's what happened . The person did try to initiate a conversation with me but I had to move on.  Yes, memories and thoughts flashed by , but just flashed and I stepped out .  As I was moving on I did think I should say something but the time gone-by was so big that we were more than strangers now . It was now just one of the many random people you meet in this journey .  I did not ask anything nor did I say . What in an…

This may seem interesting . It did to me at the very start though . 
Have you ever realized or may be wondered what happens when suddenly out of the blue / unlooked-for you run into someone from the past .  Not necessary run into but 'see' someone whom you used to know at one point in time in this life journey .  What happens ?!

A similar case with me happened during one of my travels .  At the airport waiting lounge ( btw : This was one of the few times when I actually availed the so called ' lounge benefit'  on my credit card and I must say it was worth it ) I was busy reading one of my most admired and an exceptional author - Yashodhara Lal's new release ' There's somethi…

Strike a Stroke - Time to act FAST

Normally , I prefer giving lectures and sessions and not necessarily listening to one. But , when the doctor speaks you must hear and pay attention .
I was at an elite Delhi gathering recently for a personal get together when in the neighbouring hall we heard someone tell us that a lady who seemed absolutely normal walked across to get some tea and fell down .
People gathered around her, made her sit and offered her tea and asked if everything was ok.  She nodded, as per them and everything was normal hence. 
The only caveat being that within 4-5 hours of this incident she passed away . 
She suffered a Stroke .  I was both shocked and sad to hear about this and think that some of Delhi's most elite people were at that gathering and yet everyone missed out on this particular thing . And so , I decided to do my bit to spread the word across so that a life can be saved by anyone anywhere.
